IN­DEPTH COVERAGE Godman

CHENNAI: Instances of long-time companions turning against their boyfriends, and accusing them of rape, are on the rise. Affairs gone sour, break-ups and failed live-in relationships are being taken to police by women, who charge their ex-boyfriends with rape, police say, conceding that such complaints are being lodged more frequently than before. "We do try to strike a compromise between the man and woman, who are mostly young, but we are left with no choice if a woman sticks to her stance," a senior police officer said. Recent examples include an IT company boss who was slapped with rape charges by his former employee, one year after she quit the job. There was also the case of a hearingimpaired man who was booked for rape after he broke up with his long-time companion. She complained to the police that he deserted her after they had lived together virtually as man and wife. Once an FIR is registered, the prospect of arrest gets real for the man in such cases. "An arrest can ruin his self-esteem , his business and public profile," said former special public prosecutor for human rights court V Kannadasan. "Of course police have no choice but to register a case, but arrest is entirely their discretion and it should be exercised most judiciously," he said, pointing out that a couple's intimacy for a prolonged period should be taken into account by police while probing such cases. In the recent past, police have registered a case against controversial godman Nithyananda based on allegations made by an exdevotee . It is for the police to unearth the truth, given the fact she had claimed that the godman raped her 45 times. Another incident involves a private company boss, who was arrested on charges of rape. Interestingly, here too, the two complaints from as many ex-employees came more than a year after the alleged rape took place. In a few of these cases, the alleged perpetrator of the crime and his victim may have shared an emotional or intimate relationship , thus blurring the line between sexual exploitation and a consensual affair. The social context remains the fact that a large number of young professionals are increasingly living together or close to each other, say police. Sharing a roof or living-in as partners too is common in this age group, they say. But sometimes, such arrangements are brought to an end without mutual consent, leaving the couple bitter. Treasurer of the Madras High Court Advocate Association T K S Sudha, admits that some women do lodge rape complaints with the motive of exacting revenge after a relationship sours. "The Supreme Court has approved live-in relationships to an extent, as it has held that the girl is entitled to claim maintenance from her live-in partner. But, to allege rape after being in such a relationship is taking the liberty too far. It is abuse," CASE HISTORY Hearing impaired man gets arrested on rape charges after partner accuses him of going back on his promise to marry her A rape case was registered against controversial godman Nithyananda after a devotee claimed that she was raped 45 times Managing director of a private firm was arrested after two rape cases were filed by ex-employees , a year after the incident.

Why call it rape if teenagers elope willingly, asks special court - Express India

Why call it rape if teenagers elope willingly, asks special court
Aneesha Mathur,Aneesha Mathur Posted: Feb 22, 2013 at 0228 hrs New Delhi A special fast­track court, set up to try sexual offences, on Thursday questioned if there is a need to relook at the age of consent and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act. The court’s observations came as it allowed the release of a 20­year­old man, convicted of kidnap and rape of a 16­year­old girl, after the girl told that court that she willingly went with the man. Additional Sessions Judge (ASJ) Virender Bhat said the courts are “flooded” with cases where girls between the ages of 15 and 17 willingly engaged in sexual intercourse with man “whom she loves and wants to marry”. He said the case is a “grim reminder” of the “realities of society”, and asked “why their sexual act with their lover (was called) as rape, when it is not in fact so”. “Today’s girl of more than 15 years of age is not so innocent and numb as would be lured into the sex act by a boy. They are more mature and nubile than the girls of their age about 25 to 30 years ago,” the court said. The Naraina resident was arrested in August 2012, and was convicted after he pleaded guilty and admitted that he knew that the girl was under 16 when they eloped. The girl, who was examined as a prosecution witness, told the court that she had run away with the man on her own volition and they had sexual intercourse with her consent. “It is, therefore, manifest that the convict had not employed any force or coercion upon the prosecutrix and she was a willing party to the elopement and the sexual intercourse,” the court said. The ASJ said the boys suffered in such situations as their “educational career is marred and they face incarceration in jail for a considerable time, when the girl with whom they enjoy sex, is equally responsible for the whole episode”. The convict in the case was released on the jail term already undergone by him as an undertrial. Stating that the court was “powerless” as long as it was not given the discretion to adjudge the girl’s consent in individual cases, ASJ Bhat said the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act would “be a great disservice to the nation as it will open floodgates for unwarranted criminal prosecution of young boys”.

Bahadurganj police

IN­DEPTH COVERAGE Lawyer

KISHANGANJ: No less than 40 cases of rape, gang rape and other atrocities against women were reported in one single police circle of Bahadurganj in Kishanganj district in 2012, according to police sources. There are three police circles in Kishanganj district: Kishanganj, Thakurganj and Bahadurganj. According to police sources, 20 cases of rape, three of rape-cum-murder, two of dowry murder, and 16 other cases of atrocities against women were registered with Bahadurganj, Terhagachh and Dighalbank police stations under Bahadurganj police circle in the district during 2012. The two cases of gang rape and murder at Bangama and Bhoradah-Idgah under Bahadurganj police station were shocking, sources said. But the seamy side of the story is that Kishanganj has a notorious track record of false rape cases. "Almost 90% of the rape cases, particularly the complaint cases filed in the courts, turn out to be false," says Kishanganj SP Manoj Kumar. "As far as the incidents of rape are concerned, people try to sort them out at panchayat level and only when there is no satisfactory outcome, the victims approach the police. The rape victims should straightway come to the police," the SP said, adding that by the time such cases are registered with the police, medical examination of the victim becomes difficult resulting in poor conviction rate in rape cases. "An awareness programme is on the cards," he said. A senior lawyer, Gopal Prasad, has a similar take on it. "Most of the complaint cases of sexual assault filed in a court turn out to put pressure on their adversaries." Lodging rape complaint cases is a convenient way of settling scores, he said. "The rape cases are generally used as tool to settle land disputes," Sishir Kumar Das, another senior lawyer, said. "People are generally poor and illiterate. They are little bothered about the stigma of rape charges. Any pretext is good enough to file a rape case against their rivals and adversaries," a social activist and lawyer Shaji Verghese said.

Seven ‘false’ rape cases registered in Punjab in two days

By  Daily Post
India, 1/1/2013 11:26:56 AM

Nitin Jain Chandigarh   The countrywide protests over the Delhi death­rape incident prompted Punjab Police to order speeding up of investigation in all cases of crime against women and children in the state, but a disturbing aspect has come to light.   After  a  review  in  a  high­level  meeting  on  Monday,  the  police  administration  found  that  seven  of  the  11 FIRs of rape registered in Punjab in the last couple of days were false, filed for ulterior motives and with misrepresentation of facts. Besides, two other cases have been found to be ‘highly doubtful’.   In  the  remaining  two  cases,  involving  enticement  of  minor  girls,  however,  the  department  has  initiated speedy  action  against  the  accused  after  finding  that  the  cases  were  filed  on  ‘genuine  grounds’.  In  both cases, the accused have been arrested, and the chargesheet will be presented within a day in one case, and in a week in the other, a top police officer told Daily Post.   “We’ve ordered cancellation of the seven FIRs filed for ulterior motives. After filing cancellation reports and  getting  the  alleged  accused  discharged,  we  will  initiate  proceedings  under  Section  182  of  IPC  for filing of false complaints,” the officer added.   In the two ‘highly doubtful’ cases, high­level probes have been ordered before proceeding further.   Concerned  over  the  misrepresentation  of  facts  in  several  cases  of  kidnapping,  rape  and  criminal

intimidation  reported  in  the  past  few  days,  DGP  Sumedh  Singh  Saini  on  Monday  evening  shot  off  an advisory to all the field officers across the state to exercise restraint in such cases.   “While it is imperative to ensure prompt registration of cases and expeditious and vigorous investigation in all  cases  of  sexual  assault  and  violence,  at  the  same  time,  it  is  incumbent  on  the  district  police  chiefs  to ensure  that  innocent  persons  are  not  booked  or  harassed  merely  on  the  basis  of  false  allegations  and  by misrepresentation  and  distortion  of  facts,”  the  DGP  wrote  to  all  the  Zone  IGPs,  Police  Commissioners, Range DIGs and SSPs.   Stressing  on  fair,  transparent  and  expeditious  investigations  into  allegations  of  sexual  assault  on  women and  children,  Saini  advised,  “The  officers  must  appreciate  that  charges  of  rape  and  abduction  are  serious and  stigmatising  in  nature  and  can,  therefore,  cause  serious  and  lasting  damage  to  the  reputation  of  the individual and his family in society.”   Releasing the list of false cases, the DGP added, “A preliminary scrutiny and reading of FIRs registered in these cases would reveal that these cases need to be investigated through police officers of SP rank before taking any hasty and precipitate action in the matter.”   Earlier, in two separate directives, the DGP had asked the field officers to improve the police response to sexual  assaults,  violence  and  abduction  of  women  and  children,  besides  ensuring  monitoring  and  prompt and effective investigation of such offences at the level of SSP and DCP.   It was ordered that complainants in cases relating to crime against women and children will not be called to police stations for inquiry or investigation.

Moga police takes action against woman who registered false rape case
Divya Goyal Posted online: Sat Jan 05 2013, 05:13 hrs

Moga : Setting an example for women who lodge false rape cases, Moga police on Friday not only cancelled the FIR logded against a man on late Wednesday night within 48 hours, but also took action against the woman who registered the false rape case. A 35­year­old complainant from Nihal Singh wala had alleged rape from past eight years and registered FIR against him after which police arrested him under Section 376 of IPC. Surjit Singh Grewal, SSP, Moga said, “No doubt we registered the case against the man because we found proof of physical relationship and abortions done provided by woman but detailed investigations have found that man never raped her. There is a difference between rape and consensual relations. The woman did all this to pressurise and harass the man since he was a famous kabaddi player and she wanted him to marry her but he married some other woman. We have cancelled the FIR and special investigation team (SIT) was formed to investigate the case.” The SSP has also ordered action against the woman under section 182 of IPC. “We have the full right to take action against people who register false cases be it man or woman.”

Experts caution against rise in false cases ‑ Hindustan Times

Saturday, January 05, 2013 Mohamed Thaver, Hindustan Times December 31, 2012 Email to Author First Published: 01:40 IST(31/12/2012) Last Updated: 01:41 IST(31/12/2012)

Experts caution against rise in false cases
Even as police stations have been directed to treat all cases of crimes against women on priority, which has reflected in the rise of FIRs filed last week, a section of the police and lawyers fear people could misuse the enhanced scrutiny to register false cases. To counter this, experts have urged the police to exercise caution while registering complaints. On December 27, a 17-year-old girl from Trombay, who is hearing and speech impaired, alleged that she had been gang raped. The police filed an FIR and initiated a probe into the case, but later found the allegations to be false. “We have been registering FIRs in all cases when a woman approaches us, even if we suspect that the person against whom the complaint is registered may be innocent. In the current scenario, we may invite public anger even if there is a genuine delay in filing an FIR,” said a senior inspector from a south Mumbai police station. Former police commissioner MN Singh said it was a positive sign that police were registering more complaints. “As per the law, a policeman is duty bound to first register an FIR in cognisable offences, and then investigate the matter. How would he know whether a complaint is fake or genuine without investigating? He added: “The bigger problem is that of burking – not registering FIRs even in cognisable offences. Even if the police later learn that an FIR they registered is false, they can close the case by filing a summary report.” Singh also said that action could be taken against the complainant if a false complaint was registered with the wrong intention. IPS officer-turned-lawyer YP Singh said that even if registering FIRs is a must, police could do some ground work before making arrests. “There are certain cases, such as the Delhi rape, where the accused must be arrested immediately. However, cases where police have cause for suspicion and there is no fear of the accused going in hiding, the police should investigate the matter before making arrests,” he said. Advocating a balanced approach, lawyer Nitin Pradhan said: “One has to be careful while demanding stringent laws, as the police could end up misusing these sections. One must take a balanced view and not get carried away.” http://www.hindustantimes.com/StoryPage/Print/982905.aspx © Copyright © 2012 HT Media Limited. All Rights Reserved.

The Hindu : News / National : ‘Women equally responsible for crimes against them’

‘Women equally responsible for crimes against them’
Suvojit Bagchi

Vibha Rao

“They (tribals) are in live­in relationship. Once a couple gets separated, the case goes to the police. Those are not rape,” says Vibha Rao, chairperson of Chhattisgarh State Women Commission

Vibha Rao, the chairperson of Chhattisgarh State Women Commission, doesn’t agree that her views are a case of ‘blaming the victim’ but is emphatic that women are “equally responsible” for the sexual offences committed against them. The gruesome acts of rape and victimisation of women may have shocked many. But Ms. Vibha Rao says that women, influenced by western culture, send wrong signals through their dress and behaviour and men often take the cue from those signals. “Women display their bodies and indulge in various obscene activities. Women are unaware of the kind of message [their actions] generate,” she said. Ms. Rao’s focus is not the criminal nature of rape or the power relations behind it, but she believes excessive “display of body” by women influenced by western culture is the key. Ms. Rao, an advocate by profession and a prominent BJP leader in the State, says Bollywood with its film songs is adding to the cultural breakdown. Other reasons for sexual offences against women are ignorance of Hindu epics that teach values, proliferation of the Internet, and the breakdown of joint families. “Joint family system is disintegrating and hence cultural values are not inculcated in kids,” Ms. Rao said. Tribals in Chhattisgarh have little exposure to western culture. But there have been several well publicised cases recently when tribal women have been raped without the police taking any action. Ms. Rao does agree that rape figures in tribal districts of Chhattisgarh are not ‘readily available’ with the Women’s Commission, but she says, “They [tribals] are in live-in relationship and have consensual sex. Once a [tribal] couple gets separated, the case goes to the police. Those are not rape,” said Ms. Rao. Regarding alleged rape of the tribal women by erstwhile vigilante gang members in south Chhattisgarh, Ms. Rao said she cannot comment on ‘sub judice’ matters.

Chandigarh: A 22 year old female Kabaddi player finds herself at the receiving end of a rape charge she had leveled against another player. Police say that the charges have been proven to be false and so they will be charging the player in accord with Section 182 of the IPC for lodging a false complaint. Police say that a 3- member probe committee had been formed the moment she had lodged her complaint on the 1st of January. She had then said that she was raped continuously for eight months. However, it was soon discovered that the woman had been having a consensual physical relationship with the kabaddi player she later accused of rape. Matters actually turned sour when the player married someone else. Police believe that the complaint was made as ‘revenge’ for the perceived slight.

Woman, Mother Marked for Lodging 'False' Rape Cases
NEW DELHI | JUN 27, 2012

A woman and her mother have been ticked off by a Delhi court for their "habit" of lodging false rape cases with ulterior motives, including those for grabbing property. The court, while acquitting a man accused of raping the woman, observed that she and her mother had earlier too lodged several cases of rape, some of which have already been found to be false. The judgement came after the woman admitted during her cross­examination that she had lodged the false case and had deposed before the police "at the instance and in connivance" with her mother, who had developed a "grudge" against the accused, who ran a shop. "...All these circumstances are making it evident that neither prosecutrix nor her mother has any regard for the truth and they seem to be in the habit of getting false cases registered either with a view to grab the property of other persons or for carrying out some other illegal design in their minds, best known to them," Additional Sessions Judge Rakesh Tiwari said. "In view of my aforesaid discussion, the prosecution has miserably failed to bring home the guilt of the accused from any point of view and hence the accused is acquitted of the charges under section 376 (rape) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of IPC," the judge added. The court in its judgements noted the statement made by the complainant during her cross­examination in which she admitted that her mother had earlier lodged a false case of rape against a woman school teacher and a man. The court noted that the complainant had admitted that her mother was annoyed with the lady teacher and the accused man as they were not supporting their claim over a plot of land and for this reason her mother told her to lodge a complaint of rape against them. Later she even apologised to the teacher and the man for lodging a false case of rape against them, the court pointed out. The court said the complainant woman also admitted that she had lodged the case in hand at her mother's instant as the shopkeeper had asked them to leave the village, saying that the dubious people were visiting them and they were "indulging in bad acts." The police had lodged the FIR in September 2008 when the complainant woman had deposed that she was raped by him.

Fake rape victims dangerous to society: Court

New Delhi: Women who file false rape cases are a danger to the society as the courts and public would start disbelieving the real victims, a Delhi court has said. Additional Sessions Judge R Tewari made the remark while acquitting a woman and discharging a man from a false case of gangrape, lodged by another woman working as a district court employee.

] False alarm "Such alleged (fake) victims of rape are potentially dangerous to the society in the sense that from tomorrow onwards the general public as well as the courts will start disbelieving the version given by even the real victims of rape," the judge said while acquitting the woman. The court acquitted her of the charges of hatching the criminal conspiracy with four men to abduct and rape the complainant saying "right from the beginning till the end she (complainant) narrated a story, the facts of which could not be reconciled at all." While one of the four men, accused of abducting and raping the woman, was discharged earlier, three others were declared proclaimed offenders. The court further observed that the "alleged (fake) victim" is not afraid of the consequences of falsely implicating someone in a rape case as she works in one of the district courts here and added that she is a "cold-blooded thinker" as she does not repent the allegations made by her. "Prosecutrix (alleged victim) admittedly working in a district court has no fear or by virtue of her said job her fear has gone out of her mind towards the law and she can play with the law and legal procedures as a master juggler and she can go to any extent by levelling allegations against anyone.. I have no hesitation in drawing an inference that she is a cold-blooded thinker whereby she can implicate any person, having inadvertence towards the consequences and at the same time, she has no repentance over her said false allegations," the court said.

Now, woman 'abuses' minor boy
Author: Express News Service Published Date: Jan 5, 2013 12:35 PM Last Updated: Jan 5, 2013 12:35 PM Another case of sexual harassment popped up in Paravoor  as the police took a woman into custody for   allegedly sexually abusing a 11­year­old boy,  on Friday. The accused has been identified as Shahida, 40, native of Vedimara, who currently resides at Paravoor. According to the police, the victim used to bring vegetables and fruits to the house of Shahida. “It  was  on  December  11  that  she  locked  the  boy  inside  her  room  and  allegedly  undressed  him.    Later,  she  forcefully  engaged  him  in  sexual activities. The boy informed the incident to his friends and fearing teasing, he avoided going to school for two weeks,” the police official said. The teachers informed the parent teacher association about the absence of the victim from the school. When  the  PTA  authorities  called  the  boy  to  inquire  about  the  matter,  he  informed  them  of  the  incident.  The  authorities,  instead  of  informing  the police,  tried  to  arrive  at  a  compromise  between  the  family  of  the  victim  and  the  accused.  But  on  Thursday  night,  posters  regarding  the  incident appeared at different localities of Paravur. On the basis of this, the police approached the parents of the victim and received a complaint against the woman.

Charged with molestation, youth kills self
TNN | Jan 1, 2013, 02.31 AM IST

NEW DELHI: A youth allegedly committed suicide by hanging himself from a fan after being booked for sexually harassing two women at a south Delhi bus stop. One of his friends, also an accused, attempted suicide by consuming poison. The friend is reported to be critical and is admitted at hospital. Police, however, denied the youth had attempted suicide. According to them, the accused took an overdose of medicines as he had not been keeping well. The deceased has been identified as 19-year-old Chandrakant Singh. Police said a third accused is on the run even as sources said the contrary. Families of the accused alleged that harassment by police led to the extreme step. Police said the duo had been harassing the two women since October. One of the victims lodged an FIR under Section 509 of the IPC (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) against the three accused at the Mehrauli police station on December 24. She was accompanied by her brother. Chandrakant and his friend were nabbed the next day but freed on bail the same night. Singh family alleged that police had humiliated him so much that he slid into depression and killed himself. They further alleged that a local police officer had demanded Rs 10,000 as bribe for not slapping molestation charge on Singh. The incident was reported from New Manglapuri area in south Delhi's Fatehpur Beri. While the suicide took place on December 25, according to cops, the second accused allegedly took poison on December 26. A suicide note was recovered, where Singh said he took the step of his own volition and nobody should be blamed for it. The third accused was identified as Mohit. All the three youths are students at an industrial training institute. The three accused were preparing for an electrician training course at the institute. The victims as well as the accused used to board the same DTC bus on route number 413. "The girl and our son had been using the same bus. They are a group of friends who would travel together. I had gone to see a doctor when I learnt that he had been arrested. On returning home, my son refused to speak to anyone. The next morning, I got a call from police who said they needed my son to fix a board at the police station. I refused to let my son go as he seemed very depressed. I counselled him and left for work after lunch. When my daughter went to give Chandrakant food, he didn't open the door. The family members broken open the door and found him hanging from the ceiling fan," said Chandrakant's father.

Fake rape, kidnapping cases have cops fuming - The Times of India

Fake rape, kidnapping cases have cops fuming
ByVaivasvat Venkat, TNN | Mar 12, 2013, 04.00 AM IST

LUDHIANA: Even as the Centre is proposing to bring in legal provisions to punish those reporting false rape cases, city police too are grappling with a slew of fake cases of rape, kidnapping, loot, theft and snatching. Fed up with the waste of the force's time, additional deputy commissioner, crime, Harmohan Singh Sandhu said police found the claims of the complainants to be false in 17 cases pertaining to rape, kidnapping, snatching, theft and loot. "Many a time, we found the complainants had concocted stories for making money or other considerations. We discovered later that the employees had enacted the "drama" for usurping the money given to them for being deposited in the banks or to hand over to business partners," he said. Ludhiana commissioner of police Ishwar Singh is of the view that the major problem area for the force is handling fake rape and the kidnapping complaints. "In most kidnapping cases, it turns out that the children reported missing had actually gone out with friends. Out of the 30 cases registered in the first three months of this year, in eight, the children were either found sleeping at home, from some place near the railway station or at a religious place where they had gone of their own accord," the commissioner pointed out. But, the false rape complaints are the bigger test for the police in the prevailing environment of insecurity. Many complainants make use of the greater greater police compliance after the Nirbhaya gang rape to their advantage and allege rape. On investigation, the truth is bared. It turns out that the 'rape' case was actually that of cheating, where intimate relations were established on the pretext of marriage or some other promise. "I would say that there is a need for having a stringent law to act against those who make false complainants so the police department does not end up wasting its men and resources and can concentrate on other serious issues and wiping out the crime," the commissioner added.
